My idea was that he'd just return the string "Foo" or the filename or 
something. But I forgot this was the first element in the file, which would 
cause problems as to what would be returned by Digester. (One could 
theoretically create a List and place the "Foo" string and what else is 
created by the digester in the list, and just ignore the initial "Foo" 
element, but...)

... I agree, but I couldn't remember the XML syntax for that either.
Looking through some old files I see I have once tried creating a set of 
rules using org.apache.commons.digester.xmlrules.DigesterRulesSource and 
the <include class="..." /> tag.
